  • Harnessing the Law of Data Gravity – Cyber Defence for the Hybrid Cloud Thu 4th Oct 14:20 - 14:50

    Harnessing the Law of Data Gravity – Cyber Defence for the Hybrid Cloud

    Digital transformation drives business critical workloads to the cloud, it’s also driving traditional cybersecurity operations managers a little nuts. Harnessing the law of data gravity is a promising path forward for cyber defence and response. This talk will propose a new model that replaces the old school SIEM enabling SOC teams to focus on intelligent automation and security decision making where context and integration from data gravity is most abundant. This session will outline how the law of data gravity can be applied to security and demonstrate some first steps toward a new SOC / cyber defence model for 2020 and beyond
